Just saw a very amusing Mastercard commercial featuring the iconic clay figure Mr. Bill, of late '70s SNL fame.

And I have to explode forth with snarkiness and pure rant.

While the commercial is indeed "priceless", yet again a misconception about this figure is perpetuated.

Let me be perfectly clear:

While "Oh Nooooooo!!!" was occasionally spoken, MISTER BILL DID NOT SAY "OH NOOOOO!!!!!" WHENEVER HE MET WITH DISMEMBERMENT.

The line he said was a simple "ooooooooooooo!!!!!" (pronounced "ooh!!!!"). That's it. Occasionally followed by "ooooooh, why? why??"

Do I have to sic Sluggo on all you people?

Ciao for niao.
